The Chania Prefecture region

Crete enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate as it sits halfway between the Greek mainland and Africa. The south and west coast tend to be hotter than the north and west. The largest of the Greek islands it is both rugged yet very beautiful with high mountains and green valleys. The Island offers great beaches and wonderful gorges with some fantastic walks.


The Rodopos peninsular is very central to western Crete with Chania 30mins, Kastelli 20mins, the fabulous beaches of Elefanisi, Gramvousa and Falasana are all within easy reach. There are wonderful walks without having to stray far from the peninsular. The flora and fauna is amazing and abounds with wild herbs and greens. Birds from raptors, egrets, hoopoes to tiny finches and songbirds abound. In Platanias there is plenty of clubs, bars and tavernas and Kolimbari has some excellent restaurants. The light in the area is amazing and many artists have made reference to this
